BILL ADLER: HIP-HOP ARCHIVIST (INTERVIEW)BILL ADLER: HIP-HOP ARCHIVIST (INTERVIEW)

Words & Interview By Jake Paine

Hip-Hop music and all that goes with it moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around—and save the albums, the clippings, and the artifacts that go with it—you could miss it. Most of us, no matter how devoted we have been to the culture, get easily lost in the ephemera.
